USB 3.0 pcie x1 adapter??

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm having a hard time choosing usb 3.0 adapters for pcie x1. Most of them have 2 ports, but using both will bottleneck the x1 speed. Are there any adapters with only 1 usb 3.0 port?

1) If you're using one device on a two port... it doesn't matter
2) Very few devices can get close to the peak of bandwidth of USB3.0
3) USB3.0 controllers cannot do peak sustained


If you are really concern, look for an Asus U3S6. It has 2xUSB3.0 and 2xSATA 6Gb/s on a 4x PCIe card.
Once again...

If was trying to avoid that adapter because my mobo doesn't have an x4 slot. (only x1 and x16) using the x16 means giving up the gfx card. are there just as good alternatives to the u3s6?
